Leeds United head coach Paul Heckingbottom is hoping Samu Saiz will be fit in time for Leeds next game but Laurens De Bock looks like he will be on the sidelines for a while.
The pair missed the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday with hamstring injuries.
The Leeds head coach says the injuries do not look good for the pair but he is hoping Saiz will be back in time for Leeds next game against Bolton Wanderers when the team return to Championship action after the international break next weekend.
“We want to assess them,” Heckingbottom told BBC Radio Leeds.
“They are both different sorts of hamstring injuries but they both got bits of their tendons involved, which is not good.
“Lauren`s is worse than Samu`s.
“We will keep working with Samu and try and have him back, if not for the next game then the one just after that.”
With De Bock out of the side, Heckingbottom gave a debut to young full-back Tom Pearce. The Leeds academy product impressed on his debut for the club despite the defeat.
